We are chuffed to announce that the Dutch born, Brooklyn adopted artist, Daytona Starsky had dropped two new singles before his forthcoming album release in the new year! As an artist already on the rise and who’s DIY style is catchingly unpredictable, his releases this month being (Daytona Starsky Remix) of JAN3T’s debut single “Allons Y” and new solo record “Mr. Action” have presented him as an innovative artist. Both releases have been released on Starky’s and JAN3T’s Brooklyn based Super Fine Audio label.
Starsky has proven that he can do it all and has paved his musical journey as a notable multi-instrumentalist, producer, songwriter, videographer and fashion enthusiast. If you put Starsky in a room, he could wear every hat and you’d still hear his branded style and vision within every creation. “Allons Y” (Daytona Starsky Remix) delivers exactly that, he gave it a new vibe and energy that bleeds inside of his own world. Starsky told us, “Allons Y is a dope track with a present punk vibe to it. It feels like it’s the voice of the youth trying to shake the older generation out of their ways and telling them to accept that they’re going to take the world in a new direction. JAN3T really captured an interesting sonic quality that was centered around a distorted bass and drum line with catchy pop-like elements to it. I thought it would be fun to take the idea of the voice of the youth but throw it out into a futuristic pop setting whilst keeping the original identity of the song intact. JAN3T is super talented and his energy shines through on the production and performance, very excited for what’s to come from him.” Listen HERE!
Starsky’s solo track “Mr. Action” is another product rooted from the same innovative core approach. It holds all the ingredients that make up Daytona Starsky. While he is known to explore hip hop, psychedelic rock and electronica, he confidently takes on pop in his own stride. Heavily inspired by Jimi Hendrix, Starsky’s driving force is his guitar in hand and shredding memorable riffs. In November, he will release “Mr. Action”, which shares all of the aforementioned. Starsky described the track off of his forthcoming LP, “Mr. Action is a futuristic pop-rock song recalling the style of music that I grew up with in the early 2000’s. It has a driving energy and is very hypnotic. The song is about a sort of Wizard Of Oz-like character who is there to deceive you from the truths of reality and to prevent you from knowing what or who is behind the curtain. The last few years have been very eventful in many ways and we are all trying to find meaning and reasons for these times, even though the answers are often nuanced and leave you with more questions and uncertainty. Sometimes I wish it was as easy as a person behind the curtain who is pulling all the strings, because that would be more comforting than chaos. And so I created this character called ‘Mr. Action’ to personify the answer to all of this and to encapsulate the chaos into a person who is orchestrating mass confusion.” Listen HERE!
